Valuable Reference Source for Local Historians

The National Archives of Ireland have just launched the ‘Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland’.  This state-funded project lead by Trinity College has combined historical investigation, archival conservation and technical innovation to re-imagine and recreate, through digital technologies, the archive of the Public Record Office of Ireland that was destroyed on 30th June 1922 during the destruction of the Four Courts. For instance there are near 500 documents referring to Dungarvan.
